Installation Error


Recommended Posts

After years of using the FS Nav programme my computer crashed (using FS2002 with Vista) I lost the programme , I did have it backed up twice but cant find any of the copies, I have downloaded FS Commander with a view to purchase but it wont load on my computer, I have a copy of FS2004 which I am using to run with. I have tried loaded it on my laptop and the programme seems to run fine but on my desktop the progamme starts to load but then comes up with "Installation ended prematurely because of a error" . Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your help but I am a computer novice and I have tried to find out how to install as a administrator but cant find out how to do this other than right click, If it is going to get complecated then I wont trouble you any more and just give up on the flight sim

Once again thanks for your help

Hi Mike,

1) uninstall your FSCommander

2) right mouse click on the file FSCSETUP.EXE -> select Run as Administrator

After installation:

Open the FSC folder, select the file FSCDbManager85.exe and create a new shortcut on to your desktop,

create also a new shortcut for the FSCxx.EXE on your desktop.

Right mouse click on the FSCDbManager85 shortcut,

select properties, select tab Shortcut, select Advanced, activate Run as adminstrator, O.K.

select tab compatibility, make sure that below the Privelege Level the "Run this program as administrator" is also activated, Apply, O.K.

Now the same procedure for the FSC85 shortcut.

Now run the FSCDbManagerxx.
